Thursday night, the Drew Central Pirates lost at home to the Harmony Grove Hornets, 14-40. It was the Pirates’ last game this season, and they played hard to end it on a good note.
The Hornets were successful in the first half, with the score being 0-34 at halftime, but in what seems to be turning into a trend, the Pirates rallied in the second half. The Pirates held the Hornets to a touchdown, and blocked their extra point attempt, while scoring 2 touchdowns and a 2 point conversion of their own. The Pirates also forced a fumble on a Hornet kickoff return, and recovered the ball on the Hornet 20 yard line, but ran out of time before they scored again.
Practice started for Drew Central Pirates Football last Monday (the 4th). It’s no secret that the program has struggled in the past years, but with a new head coach at the helm and determined players backing him, this year promises to be a major step in the right direction.

She has taken much pride in keeping the Drew Central Gymnasium looking great! She worked above and beyond to help out all the many students that came in touch with her throughout the days in the gym and keeping it spotless, including washing all the practice and game uniforms for our teams.
The boys and girls basketball programs purchased her a bicycle to ride with her grandchildren.
We will miss you Mrs Gertie!!!
